What can I give my son if he's allergic to whole milk and lactose-free milk?

The welts don't seem to bother him, or itch but they are WELTS and they are everywhere! The doctor said it would go away after awhile, but it never did so I thought I should stop 'cause it might hurt his skin.

  • You say they didn't go away... I'm thinking you need to go back to the doctor. If the same doc doesn't do anything... time to get a new doc.

  • The welts do go away after about an hour or two, we tried soy but the doctor said it didnt provide anything for him what so ever. I want to wean him because I'm getting sick from him takin everything from me, but he needs a replacement for the breastmilk's fat.

  • By not going away, do you mean the condition would go away? The welts leave shortly, right? or not? Have you tried the milk from a cup? So you know it is not the bottle or nipples that he is allergic to? Try soy milk. Can he tolerate cheese or yogurt? If the doctor said it would go away and it hasn't, call the doctor and get some suggestions.

  • My grandkids drink soy milk and love it. Your doctor should listen to you and if he doesn't, please see a different one. Ask for recommendations from your friends or co-workers. Good luck.

  • I thought that soy was a nutritious alternative, so this is a surprise.

  • kids don't NEED dairy. you can get a prescription for donated breast milk or get a direct donor.

  • Soy is a good choice but it does not provide enough good fat content the doctor said. I give him the milk in a sippy he uses the same sippy for juice and doesn't break out so it isnt the cut it's the milk. Took picture of his welts to show doctor this time to make sure he listens. You lady's are on top of repies THANK YOU so much

  • May I ask your health reason? It's likely to be able to over come with the right help. Your son isn't responding well cause anything but human milk just isn't for humans. Have you talked to a lactation consultant or asked about donor milk?
